Have You Seen Moonlight?

Thursday, March 2, 2017

This movie will stick with me forever. It was brutal, it was raw, it was beautiful. After seeing the film I found myself seeking and reading anything I could get my hands on about the film and it was this NY Times piece that made me realize that it was really a story about a mother and her son. In my opinion (and I have not seen La La Land) it deserved that statue. 

So, how are you? It has been a while...sorry about that. I gotta tell you, life has been busy. But in the best way possible. 

Patrick had this portrait done of the boys for my anniversary gift. CHERISH IT. I will be looking/loving this for years to come. Thank you @christinehebert!  You are amazing! Interested? Contact christineheb2011@gmail.com for commission inquiries...worth every penny!

We went to the Manatee Festival...turns out manatees are pretty boring and just lay there, but it was still a fun day.

Wip continues to ROCK in school...library is his favorite subject. He is currently going through about 3-5 chapter books a week....he seriously cannot get enough. Somebody pinch me. 

Oh, and in addition to a zoo keeper he has decided he also wants to be a DJ #goals

Duncan celebrated 100 days at school....with a half-hearted attempt at a self portrait.

Sometimes we get these notes home and I just scratch my head and wonder who he is in one classroom to the next....it is hard to deny that he is not cute and funny so at least the teachers with a sense of humor will hopefully get him:) 

I was super proud of the Valentines that I made for the boys this year...

We spent a Saturday experiencing all of the art experiences that Orlando has to offer (turns out that it is quite a bit)...this is at the art museum in front of a Georgia O'Keefe painting...clearly Wip was more into his book:) We wrapped up the day with ice cream (of course!). 

 I got a haircut...after and before:) 

Mr. Mulloy celebrated a birthday and I had his advisee group come in to decorate his office...and they did (they truly love him if they were willing to get up at 6:00am). 

Wip wrote a play....

And was given his bible during his Holy Communion lessons

Wip's JFF (Jelly Fudge Friend - 6th Grade Buddy) sent him this postcard when he went to D.C. and it just hit home how lucky Wip is to have such amazing people in his life.

Duncan continues to try and practice kindness....

After getting in trouble at school a few times I got this text one night when Duncan snuck up to the neighbors house to play...I just LOL at her last text...he sure can play up the Eddie Haskell role:) 

Wip still loves animals

Wip is also ROCKING it in piano....he loves learning and music is something that he is passionate about. 

Duncan's work of art

 I can tell Wip is a good friend. We get these kinds of notes/signals all of the time.

 Patrick got me this for Valentines Day and I can't stop laughing at what they put for the shipping address...GLORIOUS!
 We finally got these two back together and it just flashed the teenage years before my eyes!
 I am helping out with the girls lacrosse team and I must say...while exhausting...it is so nice to be around the girls.

Finally....Duncan. Thank goodness for Duncan. He has been brushing his hair before school and this is the end result. Ironically it looks just like the hair of his buddy that he has not been making the best decisions with lately....Duncan, please, please never change. 
That is all for now...next up Jackson Hole, WY!
